From Rock Star to…The Fringe


Carlos D., the bass player for the rock band Interpol, left the group at age 26.  He’s now re-emerged as a theater artist, with a new solo play about his (former) obsession with rock n roll. It’s entitled “Homo Sapiens Interruptus,” and it’s at the New York International Fringe Festival, for five performances from August 12 to August 25th.

He now calls himself “Actor.Musician.Writer.Hiker/Backpacker.Reformed Rock Star.Italian Greyhound and Star Wars Lover”

Below, watch a brief excerpt from his show, and then hear him explain why he went from rocker at arenas to actor at the Fringe.
